Top 10 must-sees in Winnipeg When you're in Winnipeg, make sure to add these 10 world-class attractions and sights to your itinerary. You won't want to miss any of these unique experiences! 1 CANADIAN MUSEUM FOR HUMAN RIGHTS (CMHR) It's impossible to miss this building's imposing Tyndall stone façade and stunning architecture, which climbs from darkness to light through a labyrinth of alabaster walkways. Its 11 galleries feature interactive exhibits, new media displays, and artifacts that share the struggle for universal human rights. 2 THE EXCHANGE DISTRICT The city's original warehouse district still houses an embarrassment of riches when it comes to terracotta architecture, most of which was built in the late 1880s. Inside these handsome buildings you'll find some of The Peg's chicest stores, restaurants, cafes, art galleries, and entertainment centres. 3 THE FORKS Manitoba's most-visited tourist area makes the best of all four seasons. During the warmer months you can take river boats that provide fun, insightful tours on Winnipeg's two main waterways, while in winter you'll find hundreds of skaters on the Red River Mutual Trail. The Forks Market houses excellent shopping, cultural events, and The Common — a beer and wine kiosk surrounded by some of Winnipeg's best food stands. 4 FORTWHYTE ALIVE This 640-acre nature reserve's bounty includes space for fishing, ice fishing, skating, canoeing, and sailing. Features include kilometres of forested paths, North America's largest urban bison herd, and the Buffalo Stone Café which often utilizes ingredients grown right on the adjacent FortWhyte Farm. 5 HERMETIC CODE TOUR IN THE MANITOBA LEGISLATIVE BUILDING Winnipeg's grandest building is also its most mysterious — filled with hieroglyphics, freemasonic symbols, and mythological creatures. This thought-provoking tour reveals how the building is a temple of Hermetic wisdom, one that uses sacred geometry, symbolism, and architecture to emulate Solomon's Temple. ¨ ¨ ¨ ¨ ¨ Canadian Museum for Human Rights: Mike Peters Exchange District: Mike Peters FortWhyte Alive: Mike Peters 8 2019 OFFICIAL VISITOR'S GUIDE WINNIPEG
